The Sydney Bar Week timetable has been announced — book your tickets now

With 60-plus of the country’s leading spirits suppliers, the most influential bar professionals from around the country, and five big days of tastings, seminars, and parties, Sydney Bar Week 2017 is the biggest week on the bartending calendar

It’s just not September in Sydney without Bar Week, which takes place between September 16th and the 20th. Sydney Bar Week is the annual event that brings the Australian bar industry together to celebrate, party, network and learn.

Following on from the huge success of Bar Week last year, this year we’ve added a fifth day to the schedule. There’s some 22 events planned already (with more on the way), including the Indie Spirits Tasting, The Business of Bars Conference, The Top 100 Most Influential List party sponsored by Angostura aromatic bitters, the Bartender Magazine Bartender of the Year sponsored by BACARDÍ & De Kuyper, the Whiskey Roadshow, and the 17th Annual Bartender Magazine Australian Bar Awards — plus loads more.

It’s going to be action-packed five days — you can RSVP and book tickets to these events and more online right now at — check out the timetable here.

“Bar Week brings together the best and most influential bar professionals and over 60 of the country’s leading suppliers to participate in talks, tastings, and seminars,” says David Spanton, founder of Sydney Bar Week and publisher of Australian Bartender.


“That’s our number one goal, and it’s always been the case — whether it’s the magazine or our events, what drives us is sharing the knowledge of the industry’s best and brightest, and bringing the best possible experiences, products, operators, and bartenders together — and having a great time at all the parties while they’re at it.”

Sydney Bar Week is the biggest event on the Australian bar industry calendar.

“It’s also not possible without the fantastic suppliers and bars that support Sydney Bar Week — and this year is going to be the biggest bar none,” says Spanton.

For many of the events it’s first in, best dressed, so visit and book your tickets now.

See you in September!
